Day to Day

Some days I present to educators on the resources that Texas OnCourse has to offer and how to utilize them.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

As a high school student, the most important step I took in deciding my career path was to attend a university that was a good fit for me, even though I was an undecided major. I took general courses that I was interested in, and Educational Psychology was a life changing course for me; I knew I wanted to be in the field. I spoke to the professor directly and asked about the career path, and applied for graduate programs in Educational Psychology and Counseling.
